  69. @JoePulizzi TAKEAWAYS #1 • Find a niche where you can be the leading expert in the world • Develop your content mission • Focus on content type, platform and deliver consistently • Don’t build your house on rented land • Build an audience of opt-in subscribers • Need an amazing E-Newsletter and remarkable download • Diversify into media products that make sense for your partners and audience • Launch one at a time and be patient.
  70. @JoePulizzi TAKEAWAYS #2 • With any new product, limited inventory is key to pricing the offering high enough. • Consider running your training like an event. • Small events are only good for marketing big events ;) • Break-a-part one piece of research so you only have to do the research once. • Start with one podcast offering and fully integrate it into everything you offer. Getting traffic is the key. • At any one time you should have at least two to three buying options you are considering.
